In order to strengthen OSU’s process for adjudicating allegations of academic misconduct, a Task Force was assembled November 2015. The Task Force had three core objectives: develop a policy that 1) provides appropriate levels of due process for students; 2) creates a more efficient policy for faculty; and, 3) generates greater consistency in how academic misconduct cases are handled across the university.
The Task Force has handed off its recommendations to the Faculty Senate Academic Regulations Committee (ARC). ARC invites feedback on the proposed AR 15 revisions and will present a revised AR 15 to Faculty Senate for vote at an upcoming Senate meeting.
Please use this link Academic Misconduct (AR 15) Feedback to provide feedback on the current and proposed versions of AR 15, the Academic Regulation governing issues of academic misconduct.
Oregon State University’s President’s Office officially announced in February 2011 that smoking will no longer be allowed on OSU's Corvallis campus, effective Sept. 1, 2012 (OAR Chapter 576, Division 040).
This Oregon law is enforceable by the Department of Public Safety on campus year-round, including game days. It is our collective hope that our OSU community, affiliates and visitors will be well-educated of the policy and enjoy the health benefits of being in a smoke-free environment.
With this policy change, OSU joins hundreds of campuses in the Pacific Northwest and around the United States that have already enacted such bans.
Last spring, an OSU Smoke Free evaluation was conducted on campus, engaging all students, faculty and staff at Corvallis and Cascades campus. The Executive Summary (PDF) and graphs for Corvallis campus are available for download. Thank you to the thousands in our community who responded.
